President Eisenhower spoke out yesterday against extreme actions in the bitter school desegregation prob- lem and pleaded for modera- tion on both sides.

He discussed the problem and the Southern manifesto at a White House news confer- ence. Veteran newsmen noted he has never been more ear- nest.

In a discourse delivered with obvious feeling, the President made these points

Milk for Seh

By Dayton Moore

a

Uait

The Senate capped a stormy debate yesterday by voting unanimously to include a two year extension of the school milk program in its new omni bus farm bill.

The proposal was approved 89-to-0, despite cries of “dirty politics” by some Republicans who viewed it as a behind-the- counter move to revive high rigid price supports

The action came as President Eisenhower and Agriculture Secretary Ezra T. Benson put new pressure on lawmakers to rush action on the measure. The bill has been hanging fire in the Senate since Feb. 27

Sen. George D. Aiken (R-Vt) charged that high support ado cates were using the milk pro gram as a “blackyack’ to force the Senate into accepting the

rigid price system. But in the |

end. Aiken and other foes of

the plan failed to vote against

He accused high support backers of “putting the healt! of our children into the polit cal malestrom.” Sen. Bourke B Hickenlooper (R-lowa) called the move “one of the most diabolical) situations I have seen in my 12 years in the Senat:

But Sen. Hubert H. Hum phrey (D-Minn.), who sponsored the proposal. insisted he fered it “in good faith

The amendment provides that the Government can spend $75 million in each of the next two fiscal years to buy milk for the program

A proposal by Sen. Joseph R McCarthy (R-Wis.) to restore 90 per cent of parity supports to dairy products was rejected by a voice vote Dairy sup ports, currently at 82 per cent,. range from 75 to 90 per cent under present law

The action cleared the slate of all major issues except the dual parity formula

The Senate, which held an other overtime night session on the bill, rejected, 58 to 29. an amendment to include potatoes and some other perishable com modities in the soil bank pro gram if they were in surplus

In an effort to hurry the bil! along, the Senate cut debate time on amendments from two hours to one. Democratic Lead. er Lyndon B. Johnson (Tex planned night sessions through Friday and said a Saturday meeting will be held if neces- sary to reach a final vote

Newsmen gained the distinct impression that only a techni- cality now stands between the Vice President and the nomina- tion, if he commits no. major political blunder and there is no important change in the po- litical scene
